>> this is al jazeera. >> good to have you with us. this is the al jazeera news hour i'm david foster and in the next 60 minutes: egypt's deposed president, mohamed morsi appears in court and rejects the entire process. the case is adjourned until january. pakistan considers retaliation over u.s. drone strikes. >> hello there, i'm felicity bar, in london, the latest in
1:01pm
europe, picasso and matisse. discovered in a flat in munich. from this to this. a suspect escapes disguised in a burka. >> so, the trial of egypt's deposed president mohamed morsi has been adjourned until the beginning of next year. earlier, he and other muslim leaders arrived in cairo to face charges. it was chaotic in the start. it was delayed, resumed, and finally with morsi failing to recognize the legitimacy of the court. thousands of pro-morsi suppor
1:02pm
supporters staged protests, several were arrested and protests from a pro-government news channel, from the supreme constitutional court and the high court. an extra 20,000 security personnel were deployed across the capitol to deal with any trouble. dominic kane is with us from cairo. over to you dominic. >> well, david, the protests we saw earlier on today have dissipated now. the streets of cairo are calm. that might well be because the security presence that made itself felt today in the streets of cairo was very intense and it certainly was in the courtroom. deposed president arrives for his trial in cairo. for the past four months he's been in detention at a secret location. as he entered the cage reserved for him and his co-defendants
1:03pm
his supporters greeted him with the sign of the anticoup alliance. , some opponents were heard to shout, execute him. morsi rejects the jurisdiction of the court. and says he is still the president. eventually, the senior judge felt compelled to adjourn the trial for two months. mohamed morsi's son osama told al jazeera that his father felt the proceedings are a sham. >> in the case of the no human rights no legal rights and in a call of emergency and emergency we know of emergency. it's not constitutional. it's not legal case. it is in fact of egypt. >> outside the courts, hundreds of morsi supporters had hoped
1:04pm
the court might dismiss the case. across the country, many of morsi's supporters were on the march. this was the scene in front of the high court in cairo. security forces used tear gas to try to get the crowds to disperse. they feel the system has lost the president. >> he is determined he is still the legitimate president and this court is not competent to try such cases. >> once the case was adjourned morsi was flown meld to the prison near alexandria his next appearance in court is scheduled for january 2014.
1:05pm
david, one development to bring you since i filed that report. in the prison in bord alarab, one newspaper has reported that mohamed morsi has doned his prison garb he wasn't willing to wear in the courtroom. >> i know this is a court, there are judges, there is a prosecutor. there are defendants. but are we, in your feeling, seeing any kind of legal process? >> i mean, there is certainly a process. but the outcome is a forgone conclusion. so i think it is fair to look at this as a legal cover for what is really a political maneuver and a politicized trial. >> so what happens next? the trial's been adjourned until january. do you believe that there will be any more momentum to be gained from the protest on the
1:06pm
street or is that also as you suggest by the lee legal procesa fate comfait accompli? >> that means pro-brother hood protests are much better organized than they were before. they are just flash mobz, can result in a fewing deaths but can't be game changers. the transition will move forward, the prosecution and you know conviction of morsi will certainly move forward. but you'll have this kind of low-grade chaos throughout, in which supporters of morse and the muslim brotherhood try to stir things up and likely fail but create quite a situation on the ground. >> it is indicative of the
1:07pm
situation on the ground. two former presidents of one country on trial in the same court at the same time. >> well, that's true. of course, you know, matt underwoomubarak is,egypt is in , postrevolutionary, call it what you will, transition, and there's no sign that that transition has yet taken a turn to a more democratic path. i think the street fights that you saw today are likely to continue for quite some time. >> other than those people who are disappointed is the wrong word but furious by the fact that the democratically elected president has been deposed, will there be many nations in the region, many people internationally who wish for things to change further, for
1:08pm
the military to take a back seat once again, given that it happened when it did? >> certainly in the international community and particularly in the west, there's broad support for military returning to the barracks and not running the country. but unfortunately the ability for the international community to affect that outcome is very, very limited. it was therefore the most likely institution to respond when morsi lost control. i think that's really the important point to america here that this is -- to make here: that this is not just the point of morsi being a bad president or noninclusive president but who lost control during his final months of power. when a president loses control, there are no really happy endings and this is one of those unhappy endings that we are
1:09pm
witnesses. >> we thank you very much indeed. >> thank you for having me. >> not to block supply routes to afghanistan, he says averages and pakistan's security are interpinterlinked. the opposition and the government say the killing represent the death of peace talks with the pakistani taliban. there are no precise figures but according to the bureau of investigative journalism at least two and a half thousand people have been killed by u.s. drone strikes in the last nine years. half are civilians. in pashower.
1:10pm
>> the interior nine sister explained to all the parliament parliamentarians, said he would give the government until the 20th of november to come out with a plan. otherwise he said that he would be forced to shut down the 92nthe-- nato supply license. the secretary general of nato hoped it would be otherwise. >> i do hope that they do realize that it is also in pakistan's interest to ensure peace, security, and stability in afghanistan. stability along the western pakistani border is different in
1:11pm
pakistan's self-interest. >> pakistan doesn't have many choice if you ask me because imran khan said they didn't want a war with the united states, however they wanted the united states to realize that these continued strikes would not do much for the pakistan peace process. they have had thousands of people killed and so they would be hoping that the americans also go for a quid pro quo that pakistan can tell the americans that we will stop your supply lines unless you don't stop those drone strikes. and of course they are also saying that if the next leader was chosen and he was taken out in a drone strike then where would that lead the peace process to? >> well, the man who first ordered the lines to be opened, pervez musharraf, has been
1:12pm
released, a cleric has also died. his legal team says the charges against him are politically motivated. still ahead on this al jazeera news hour. >> all sides are worried about the process. >> prosecutors tried to set a date of the men accused of plotting the september 11th attacks. plus: we'll have the rest of the sport in about 30 minutes. a veritable treasuretrophy of the art plundered by the nazis has been found in germany. felicity has that.
1:13pm
>> the haul has a value of more than $1 billion, and found by chance during a tax investigation. the discovery is believed to be art by picasso and matisse and chagal. of course the most expensive work ever sold was the scream. that made nearly $120 million. sonia gallegos has the story. broken by a german magazine, possibly the largest collection of art confiscated by the nazis was found amongst cans of food and rubbish in a darkened room,
1:14pm
of an apartment occupied by cornelius gullet. about 1500 masterpieces were located in the munich apartment. believed to be held in a safe at this customs office just outside munich. authorities have acted cautiously. >> the government is supporting the prosecution in the so-called degenerate art and nazi looted art. >> under hitler's regime, germans were forced to sell, greatly undervalid. the issue of restitution is one that officials have been forced
1:15pm
to confront. at the heart of disputes between current rnz and those who claim were the original owners, claimed to give up to the senate cities. >> we have got over a thousand picassos, 100 renoir and 100 matisse. those are great artists, quite prolific and they are the sort of pictures the nazis would have looted either to exchange to sell for hard currency or because they wanted them for their own museums. >> and with art continuing to command an increasing value, the recovery will figure in a long process who will figure into these that have not been seen for decades. good to have you with us. an extraordinary discovery, great discovery but this was found back in 2011 by these tax
1:16pm
investigators. why are we only hearing about them now? >> we'll speak to some very embarrassed german officials, where they will have to explain themselves why have they been sitting on these finds for two years where documents are being destroyed as memories fade and these -- the harris age, it's -- the heirs age, it's a crime to have held on to this information for two years. >> perhaps were they trying to investigate themselves without serge sort of causing an outcry and orush for people saying well i believe this belonged to my father, my grandfather, et cetera? is that possible? >> i'm sure we're going to hear some of that but there needs to be an outcry, there needs to be a rough, as these people are dying off we're losing a
1:17pm
generation and they should have come forward with a list almost immediately and it was very possible. so i think we'll see some very embarrassed officials tomorrow. >> how difficult will it be to trace the path of these works of art and who should own them? >> the documentation is so difficult to amass but there are groups out there doing the and doing very good work. if they had released this material we would have had a two-year head start on this. but groups that researched this type of material are anxiously y wait being for list that we can pour over. >> there are many other works of arts that are still missing aren't there? >> the big ones but these families truly lost a lot of material that was precious to them, that may not have that much value, tourist scrolls and
1:18pm
judeaiic items. >> thank you for coming in. the annual holiday has been dominated by russia's far right, protesting against migrants who are accused of taking their jobs. from moscow. >> russia's unity day was introduced by president putin as a national holiday eight years ago. but the march was once again hijacked by the extreme right. it's supposed to mark the victory of the russian resistance in 1612. but here there were nazi chants of sieg heil and kill the
1:19pm
migrants. the sentiments were all equal. we are russians, we have to stand together. >> translator: i'm russian and they live on the russian soil. i don't mind muslim people if they live in their own countries. i don't care about their jobs in iran, iraq, uzbekistan and tajikistan. they should not be on russian soil in such large numbers. >> eastern suburb of the march well away from the city center and heavily policed. they estimated the number of marchers at around 8,000, far fewer than the 30 thousand that had hoped to attend. the police are ringing every single intersection, it's not the danger here, it's in the
1:20pm
suburbs, away from the protests. racial tensions are particularly high this year. following riots followed by the stabbing to death of a russian last month. in the community here have warned the countrymen to take special care and close down their cafes and restaurants in case they are attacked. david chater, al jazeera, moscow. and the latest on the man hunt for the man who disguised himself in a burka to flee from police fm. the men accused of the 9/11
1:21pm
planning will be back in court. 17 months after the arraignment of the five men accused of plotting the 9/11 attack there's stilt no trial date. legal experts say that is because of the amount of time on legal motions in guantanamo bay. >> it's important that the fairness is achieved to the maximum extent possible. quirky consequence of that is things are going much slower that be usual. calling into question the legitimacy that this pace is supposed to secure. >> supposed to start trial on september 22nd, 2014. they argue too much time is wasted on what they consider irrelevant defense motions and justice needs to be served for nearly 3,000 people killed on
1:22pm
september 11th. however, the defense attorneys want to do everything they can to save their clients lives, about the defendants, their capture and the torture they suffered. they also want the black sites where the defendants were held to be preserved as evidence. plus the lawyers want the government to stop monitoring their meetings with the defendants. >> i am bad news. >> and then there is this request: defense lawyers want all the information the government gave the producers of the movie zero dark 30. from the very beginning the defendants have moved to dismiss the case for what they call government bias. but it is highly unlikely that they can persuade the judge to do so given the importance of the case. >> part of why this has taken so long is we are walking through each issue very, very carefully because i think everyone
1:23pm
realizes that the eyes of history are upon them. >> trying to balance the rights of the accused with the government's attempt to hold them accountable. no he feat. guantanamo bay, cuba. >> according to a two year study by military health and legal experts, their report says medical professionals helped design the inhumane treatment of detainees, force-feed guantanamo bay prisoners, the cia and the pentagon deny this. leonard rubenstein joins us. what do you suggest that these people have been made to do? >> based on the rules the pentagon and the cia
1:24pm
established, they oversaw and consulted on interrogation, medical and psychological information was shared with indicatorrors, doctors and nurses have been, involved with force feeding detainees. these were all based on policy. it's not a matter of some doctors and psychologists who violated rules because they were bad. they were following policy. >> so i said what were they made to do. in a sense it wasn't that they were made to do, perhaps they did it of their own free will. >> well, in the military, the military, in the command, establishes the directives and the rules. and one of the more insidious elements of this process was that they were told that all these rules and the roles that he played were reviewed and it
1:25pm
was perfectly ethical. so it's a lot more complicated than the image that we have of some doctor doing some wrongdoing without authority. >> do you get many of the people involved in this process coming forward to talk to you? >> unfortunately, very few have come forward. there's a lot of pressure on the medical personnel, not to talk to outsiders. and i think they're concerned also, that they will be judged if they come forward. and there is another limit -- >> can i ask you this mr. rube mr. rubenstein, if you haven't spoken to them, what do you know they were to do other than the testimony of those who allege they were abused? >> we have policies and directives that were established by the defense department.
1:26pm
there are some medical records that review that the lawyers have made available to us. there are reports from the international committee of the red cross. there is a body of evidence that is reviewing what's going on. that body of evidence is incomplete which is why we are calling for a more thorough investigation that the president order. >> is it still going on? >> force-feeding is definitely still going on. participation of behavioral science consultants as they're called is still -- they're still being used to support interrogation. >> well, we thank you very much indeed, that's leonard rubenstein talking to us from boston. >> thank you. >> well, coming up on the news hour, the recent partial government shutdown in the u.s. has left certain americans searching for future. >> is the u.s. government going
1:27pm
to be functioning in the future? that matters what happens here in mobile, alabama. >> and the wtp finals.
